I am back from the San Diego Comic-Con, an experience far too massive and too crazy to properly summarize in this space.
Traffic at the booth was way up from last year. There were far more people who had already heard of my comic, and for that matter, far more people who claimed to be fans of webcomics exclusively. Having first-time attendees like the Blank Label folks was nothing but good for the rest of us. There was more for webcomics fans to see this year, and as a result, a lot more of them came.
Once again, I got to hang out with a bunch of incredibly talented artists. Outside of my usual Dayfree posse, Kristopher Straub, Jerry Holkins, Steven Cloud, John Troutman, and Lady Yates were tremendously cool and a complete joy to talk to. Meanwhile, the Dumbrella guys were nice enough to invite us to meet the fabled bartender Alfred. Jerry describes that experience far better than I ever could.
Thank you to everyone who came by the booth and said hello. And thank you to my Dayfree friends Jeph, Eric, Josh, Liz, Kent, Scott, Pontus, and Christian. Your powers combined make paying to sit behind a table for four days straight seem like a good idea. That's pretty darn impressive!
